She cashes more from her business, is acting her side hustle. She has been nailing her on-screen character since Imbewu: The Seed debuted. Kajal Maharaj stars as Shria on etvs drama series Imbewu.

Her thrust into the stardom came with a  gig on Isidingo. Currently, she is nailing her Imbewu: The Seed character. She is that cunning actress we all love to hate. On-screen, she knows well how to play her cards; she staged the fall of Nkululeko and managed to divide the Bhengu’s for her family gain.

Shria has managed to mix and mingle with her enemies to forge alliances and strike deals for her gain. The bubbly actress has managed to gain some power when it comes to Malujo Oils, as she calls the shots on behalf of her family.

However, despite being a lead actress on one of Mzansi’s most-watched drama series, her occupation has got Mzansi talking. The mother of two has managed to keep her private life under wraps but got Mzansi puzzled when she revealed that she was a mother of two. Who knew that, though? She is a true testimony that mothers do slay.

The bubbly actress happens to be a model in real life. Despite having a degree that majored in Marketing, Drama, and Media and Communications, it seems as if acting is her side hustle late.

The actress happens to make a fortune from modelling and her business interests in boutiques. She also has an online store called Little M. From her modelling gigs and ambassadorial endorsements, she earns around R60 000 per month, including takings from her online stores.

However, in the wake of her monthly takings from her side hustle Mzansi has been more than keen to know her take-home salary from Imbewu: The Seed. In the mix of things, it seems as if she earns less from her lead role than her side hustles. For her Shria role, the bubbly actress earns between R40 000 – R50 000 per month. However, actors’ salaries are determined by variables such as role prominence and time on scenes.
